Sammanfattning (abstract):
Objectives. To investigate the outcome of vital root resection followed by immediate pulp capping with MTA in furcation involved maxillary molars. Material and methods. This pilot clinical study of 12 months duration was designed to evaluate the outcome of vital root resection in maxillary molars with degree II furcation involvement combined with conservative endodontic treatment by means of pulp capping with mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA). Seven teeth in six adult patients suffering from adult chronic periodontitis were included in this study. Results. At the final 12 month examination interval, one tooth had received root canal therapy subsequent to the 6-month evaluation. The remaining six teeth remained clinically vital for the duration of the study and required no further treatment at 12 months. Conclusion. Results of this study provide limited data that can be used in a further investigation with similar methodology and a sufficient sample size in a randomized clinical trial model.
